Here, despite younger age at diagnosis, lower prevalence of obesity and diabetes family history, individuals with recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes who had a low birthweight were more likely to have greater use of glucose-lowering medications and a larger burden of comorbidity. Image
- Low birthweight is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes but it is unknown whether low birthweight is associated with distinct clinical characteristics at disease onset.
- This study examined whether a lower or higher birthweight in type 2 diabetes is associated with clinically relevant characteristics at disease onset.

Women Can’t Be Forced To Choose Between Right To Education And Reproductive Autonomy: Delhi High Court @nupur_0111 #DelhiHC…
“The Constitution as adopted on 26th of November, 1949 served as a pledge that the citizens of India made to themselves. A pledge to disassociate ourselves from the parochial notions of society that prevented the ushering of equality,” #DelhiHighCourt #MaternityLeave
Court: It was without any form of equivocation that the people asserted their right to be treated equally. Irrespective of gender, race, religion or caste, citizens were to claim their opportunities.

This one in macaques suggests that a maternal Western-style diet may alter long-term immune cell developmental programming in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in utero, predisposing the offspring to inflammatory disease across the lifespan. Image
- Maternal Western-style diet exposure was associated with in utero developmental programming of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells to a pro-inflammatory phenotype.
- Maternal Western-style diet exposure was associated with persistent pro-inflammatory phenotypes at the transcriptional, metabolic, and functional levels in bone marrow-derived macrophages and in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in juvenile offspring...

🇮🇱 48,868 babies followed for first 120 days of life. Does being born after a #CovidVaccine booster in #pregnancy protect against hospitalisation for COVID?

👉🏻 Yes! With 53% effectiveness compared to two doses only.

1/… Cumulative COVID hospitalisations in babies whose mothers we
Other important findings…

👉🏻 Protection is greater when the booster dose is given later in pregnancy

👉🏻 Protection wanes as babies get older, with no significant protection after 90 days, in this study.

2/ Graph showing that babies whose mothers were vaccinated late
A lot of parents and paediatricians have been in touch with me recently querying the policy of offering a booster as early as possible. Wouldn’t it be better to delay and maximise protection for babies? The authors have something to say here… 3/ Screenshot from paper: “Moreover, as the circulation of SA

PSA: I am planning to reduce the activity on this account.

I'll explain why.

Two days ago I released a bombshell tweet exposing the shenanigans that the pharma companies and academia play in order to suppress toxicity data related to novel therapies.

This is the tweet, with the hashtag #placentagate
The #placentagate tweet was then completely suppressed by twitter in a new shadowbanning technique that rendered the tweet invisible even to people who tried to click on it.

There was something special about this, so we dubbed it #placentagategate

This tweet is a lie and I'm going to post a new paper that shows it.

Viki Male should not be allowed to post this kind of dangerous disinformation and should be sanctioned.

Viki doesn't actually quote studies showing the vaccine does not cross the placenta but a new study has just come out showing Lipid nanoparticles crossing into the placenta and delivering active mRNA.

This is what luciferase expression in mouse PLACENTAS from LNP-mRNA look like
And this is the paper. I have a feeling there will be pressure put on the authors to retract, by the Pharma companies and their lobbyists.

It's a bombshell

🇺🇸 30,311 babies followed from birth to 6 months, of whom 10,893 were born following #CovidVaccination in #pregnancy.

👉🏻 Protection against COVID infection in the delta period was 56%

👉🏻 In the omicron period, 13%

This study quite nicely shows how protection declines over time as maternal antibodies wane. For delta, protection against infection is:

84% in the first two months

62% in the first four months

56% in the first six months

We recommend reading @CCriadoPerez's Invisible Women, about the ways policy development & impact assessments fail to assess the impact on women.

Equality Impact Assessments matter.

We have asked @TeamQEH to correct their EIAs to include the 4 missing protected characteristics. Queen Elizabeth Hospital NHS Trust Equality Impact Assessmen
Despite now having the correct list of protected characteristics in V3 of the @TeamQEH Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy, the policy & EIAs do not cover those with the protected characteristic of sex as it uses the word “gender” instead of sex. >

#IWD2023 #SexMatters
. @TeamQEH was informed of these errors first in 2020 and has failed to correct the omissions and use of gender and transgender in the #Equality, #Diversity and #Inclusion policy and equality impact assessments ( EIAs). >

New cheese 🧀🧀🧀

For those enquiring about whether hospital episode statistics confirm an increase in miscarriages... the data is early.
NHS data only goes up to March 2022.

It's massively confounded but read on.

Here is "bleeding in early pregnancy" (O20)
7-sigma increase
NHS episode statistics 2017-2022:
"Ectopic pregnancy" ICD code O00.
7 sigma increase.
NHS episode statistic 2017-2022:
"Maternal care for fetal problems"
ICD code O36.
4.7 sigma increase

There are others, e.g. diabetes (7.1 sigma increase)

Cheesy Debunk 🧀🧀🧀...

HUGE red flags over this #pregnancy and #miscarriage paper, which is absolute junk.

We're going to dive in and show you why this should never have been published and anybody associated with it will be forever tainted.…
Here's the first red flag.

Redacted tables. I have never seen this in more than 20 years reviewing papers.

This is from the actual pdf on the Hum Reprod page for the paper.…
Now we're going to have to assume (because the titles are redacted🤦‍♀️) that the first forest plot shows the #miscarriage rate in each study. The bigger the square the more the weighting in the study - generally more for bigger studies.

The two largest raise a massive red flag

Young woman with unexpected cause of repeated bouts of vomiting
1. 1999: It was another busy day, when I had seen 60 outpatients, worked up & written case notes for 8 ward admissions and had finished seeing 14 consultations (from other depts). It was 2 AM and I needed some sleep.
2. Residency at CMC Vellore in 90s was tough, which denied even 4 hours of sleep on many nights. Got a call from Gastro ward regarding a 25-yr old woman who had repeated episodes of vomiting for one week. Detailed evaluation by gastro dept could not identify the cause of vomiting
3. Neurology opinion was sought to rule out neuro-related causes of vomiting (such as cyclical vomiting syndrome, brain-stem lesions, migraine, etc).
I took a detailed history. She had no symptoms other than vomiting. On examination, she was dehydrated and looked weak.

We are so PUMPED to be back at House Judiciary committee to hear HB23-1187 Alternative Sentencing for Pregnant People #copolitics

HB23-1187 will ensure that #pregnant people have the opportunity to #alternative sentencing 🔥

@S2SSisters @elephant_circle
We know that pregnancy is contraindicated towards a #healthy pregnancy & being incarcerated while pregnant is harmful to both the pregnant person and the child - #reproductivejustice is what we are fighting for today #copolitics @elephant_circle @S2SSisters
Correctional facilities are not mandated to track or report pregnancy-related data & most facilities do not have any routine process for collecting such information - another reason why we are saying YES on HB23-1187 #copolitics #leadership #reproductivehealth

Don't you just love the @UKHSA?

Not only have they delayed publishing #pregnancy data after June 2022 in the latest vaccine surveillance report but they are gaslighting you about the #stillbirth rates.

Here's the chart:
@1979pop @ClareCraigPath
Here are the figures
No doses of vaccine in pregnancy = 3.76 per 1000
One+ dose in pregnancy = 3.3 per 100
95% confidence intervals do not cross.
A significant increase then, right?

There was another piece of information missing which was buried further in the report.

Minority groups had a 25% lower uptake of vaccination

Why is that important?

Female physicians have higher infertility rates and pregnancy complications

1. Female physicians, particularly surgeons, have a significantly greater incidence of #miscarriage, #infertility, and #pregnancy complications compared to the general population…
2. In another study, of 692 female surgeons, 290 (42.0%) had a pregnancy loss, more than twice the rate of the general population.
*Female surgeons operating 12 or more hours per week during the last trimester of pregnancy were at higher risk of major pregnancy complications
3. Female surgeons had fewer children and were more likely to delay having children because of surgical training.
Incidence of postpartum depression and musculoskeletal problems were also higher in them

#OBGYN #pregnancy #COVID19 The obstetrician Kimberely Biss out of Florida is quite misguided on her statements in the hallway. One of the simplest rules of research is that you cannot necessarily generalize your personal experience to the whole population.
The actual situation on cervical cancer screening is more complicated than what she discusses - there was a lapse in screening/ diagnosis, which needed to catch up. She implies that COVID vaccines cause cervical cancer - NO, HPV does (in most cases).…
COVID vaccines do not raise the miscarriage rate -…
Miscarriage can be one of the most traumatic experiences ever but even then, systematic analysis is necessary.

#vaccineswork #pregnancy #COVID19 Wrong on all counts Steve. Here's the actual updated data on the matter, from someone who actually looks at this stuff professionally. Thank you to @VikiLovesFACS…

Maternal vaccination with two doses of mRNA vaccine was associated with a reduced risk of hospitalization for Covid-19, including for critical illness, among infants younger than 6 months of age.…
Severe complications known to be associated with COVID-19 in pregnancy (critical care admission and perinatal mortality) were more common in women who were unvaccinated at the time of COVID-19 diagnosis than in vaccinated pregnant women.…

Every lie will eventually be revealed.

@VikiLovesFACS and @kevinault have been pushing untested COVID vaccines for #pregnancy on the basis of a reduction in preterm labour risk.

It was a lie.… Image
This has happened with every paper looking at 3+ doses. When you look at the 2-dose patients in those studies, the claimed benefit disappears.

It's because the original findings were just an artefact. The benefit was fake.…
This is literally the definitive debunk of the first COVID vaccine study - the Dagan study.

All the "efficacy" was just miscategorisation bias because all cases prior to 5 weeks post-jab were counted as "unvaccinated"

This one suggests that among children and adolescents with overweight/obesity, those born small for gestational age are more likely to possess cardiometabolic risk factors compared to their counterparts born appropriate for gestational age.
- Small for gestational age in children and adolescents with overweight or obesity was associated with cardiometabolic risk factors, including increased odds for hypertensive blood pressure, elevated HbA1c, elevated ALT, and low HDL.
- On the contrary, large for gestational age was associated with lower odds for hypertensive blood pressure, elevated HbA1c, and elevated ALT.
